Aw! That's so cute! Just like to mention though, that in pre- imperialist Japan, merchants no matter how rich were considered the lowest class. Aw well, doesn't bother me!

Not that I want you to continue to have writers block, but you're welcome to write more lovely one-shots like this :P

I've read this before but didn't review. Nice short little fic. _

Heh. He does talk too much sometimes, doesn't he? I really do enjoy your style, especially your control of detail. But I have to confess, I thought Ito was a boy right up until she said 'not the seventeen year old woman I was now.' Oops. Ito was a good character, too, and while the others were a bit stock they were stock handled properly, which makes all the difference in the world. Mm.

I can't believe I've somehow missed reading your stories up till now! This was lovely. You have a very nice writing style; it's hard to describe, very calm and "storytelling-ish" (if that makes any sense), almost detached. I enjoyed the way you kept Ito's simple perspective in the tone of the writing.
Kenshin really does tend to "drop the bomb" on people's lives, doesn't he?

Oops! I forgot to post a review when I read this! So here I am now.
You did a great job with telling a completely original story, yet incorporating Kenshin. It stands on its own, even to someone who knows nothing about RK. Kenshin being in it is a like finding a little Easter Egg!
Now, while the story was great, the real genius was your own summary at the end:
"He saves the girl, rehabilitates a soldier, and plays matchmaker all in four lines of dialogue."
That cracked me up!

Great story. Simple, well toned wording. The story has a nice flow to it, almost a resonance, line to line.
Well Kenshin may not say much but he has the over-achiever bit belted thanx to u.
Nice work, now i'll promptly get back to u know what. Bye

Very good. Kenshin didn't realize how amny lives he had touched, just in his wandering years but I'm sure they were many. Wonderful story, I loved every word of it!

Oh very nice; I like this story. Short and sweet. Pity these two weren't around when Kenshin was having his various gilt-trips :)

This was such a great story! I loved it! Ito is a very realistic character, quite well-rounded. Being the romantic that I am, I was very pleased with the ending. I wish I was as eloquent with reviews as you are, though. All I can say is that I thought that Kenshin was very much in character, even if he only got four lines of dialogue. I really liked "You don't want to fight me." Yeah, they really don't. They were a lot smarter than they looked! Thanks for the pleasure your stories have given me!

Well, I rather liked this "pointless one-shot". You did a great job characterizing Ito and giving us her background. You also portrayed her feelings for Jun really well, though during the drunkard scene I really didn't think the jerk deserved her.
I really liked how she never found out who the red haired stranger was. The whole "Kenshin randomly wanders in on a crisis and saves the day only to have the people find out who he is" thing is extremely overused. It was refreshing to find that he is able to help people and still remain anonymous.
I really liked your one-shot! Have a *great* week, ja ne!

This is awesome! I love this story, I really do! Far be it from me to try to "save the world" from your one-shots. I'd rather encourage them. Any chance of a sequel? Well written as always!

Good, not obnoxious, OC.
| skenshingumi 7/1/05 . chapter 1
This story is so seemingly simple and yet so elegantly written. I cannot bemoan your writer's block if this is the result. You told the story from such an honest perspective, never losing the feeling of a peasant girl, recalling times not in years but in terms of events around her. Kenshin in his brief appearance has obviously not gotten to the point of spending a lot of time talking people out of battle. He did give one warning and then he acted. You gave a great sense of how close he is to his former self and yet changed in such a few lines. I have never been pithy. I envy you.

I liked this short story. It is definately a first. In addition, neither one knows who he was even though Jun was in the war. However, he may have thought of it later...
Thanks for a good read.
